Tutu’s for your little princess don’t have to be expensive or even difficult to make. This no-sew tutorial will have her twirling and dancing in no time at all.
This easily fits both my almost four year old and two year old alike. Being super stretchy, it’ll get a lot more wear yet before it’s outgrown. Sadly, though, it IS too small for me 😦 Yes, I tried.
- Stretchy headband (mine was 50c at a local market. Hence the rad orange colour)
- 1.5m tulle (make sure you get the softer, slightly more pricey stuff. Kids won’t thank you for anything scratchy)
Simply cut your tulle into a gazillion strips measuring 50cm x 12cm. Rough enough is good enough here. Your perfectionist side can take a break for the time being.
Fold a strip in half and, choosing a hole in the lower portion of the headband, thread it through the hole from front to back (loop first, facing downwards).
Pull the remaining length down through the loop and tighten so that it’s now fastened onto the headband.
Continue all the way around with the remaining tulle.
The more tulle you use, the more full the skirt will be. I looped some excess tulle into holes a little farther up the headband so don’t be afraid to claim more territory there if you need it.
Adult sizes, anyone??
